Hindsight is a funny thing because it can cause the most solid of choices seem weak and incorrect after the fact has occured. Take for example the San Jose Sharks offseason thus far, where many of Doug Wilson's choices can be second guessed in hindsight.
( See Marty Turco contract, Andy Sutton, Antti Niemi )
Despite the fact that some of us pine to rewind the clock, the fact is that a organization cannot operate with the specter of hindsight looming over their heads. The same goes for us fans as well, despite the huge investment in emotion we have in this team, second guessing moves after they have occured does us no good whatsoever.
The NHL calender continues to countdown as rosters, salaries and lines begin to take form. It is with a clear eye that San Jose Shark fans look to the month of September with great anticipation. By now the Sharks' pressing need on defence has provided plently of rumor mill ammo for those following this team.
One important date did indeed come and pass with no movement, and that was this past Sunday the 15th when Tomas Kaberle's NTC kicked back into effect.
Although many experts had San Jose on Kaberle's itinerary, many fans including myself breathed a sigh of relief.
More on Kaberle later however.
Here then are a few remaining possibilities that can happen, although none will probably go down before next month.
